    I saw that live. This is the sad state we are coming to. Stupid, senseless remarks to appeal to a stupid, senseless element of the public.

    I am against abortion and against PP, but I know and Romeny knows the government (or the President) can't shut down a legal, private organization. The reporter had to draw it out of him that he meant get rid of funding, and even that Romney just babbled, suggesting PP had a line item in the appropriations rather than the fact there is no line in the federal budget giving money to PP. There are government contracts that are put out to bid and PP and whoever else wants to bids on them under a merit selection process. PP got a ton of government contracts under the Bush Administration.
